  • The Comedy of Errorsby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; US$ 5.99

    Shakespeare?s Comedy of Errors is the slapstick farce of his youth. In it, the lost twin sons of the old merchant Egeon?both named Antipholus?find themselves in Ephesus, without either one even knowing of the other's existence. Meanwhile, Egeon has arrived in search of the son he thinks is still alive?and has been sentenced to death for the "crime"... more...

  • Henry IV, Part Iby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; US$ 5.99

    Family relationships are at the center of Henry IV, Part 1. King Henry IV and Prince Hal form one major father-son pair, with Henry in despair because Hal lives a dissolute life. The father-son pair of Hotspur (Lord Henry Percy) and his father, the Earl of Northumberland, is in seeming contrast; the king envies Northumberland ?his Harry,? wishing... more...

  • Henry IV, Part 2by William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; US$ 5.99

    Henry IV, Part 2 is the only Shakespeare play that is a "sequel," in the modern sense, to an earlier play of his. Like most sequels, it repeats many elements from the previous work, Henry IV, Part 1. This play again puts on stage Henry IV's son, Prince Hal, who continues to conceal his potential greatness by consorting with tavern dwellers, including... more...

  • All's Well That Ends Wellby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; US$ 5.99

    Shakespeare?s All?s Well That Ends Well is the story of its heroine, Helen, more so than the story of Bertram, for whose love she yearns. Helen wins Bertram as her husband despite his lack of interest and higher social standing, but she finds little happiness in the victory as he shuns, deserts, and attempts to betray her. The play suggests some... more...

  • Love's Labor's Lostby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; US$ 6.99

    At first glance, Shakespeare's early comedy Love's Labor?s Lost simply entertains and amuses. Four young men (one of them a king) withdraw from the world for three years, taking an oath that they will have nothing to do with women. The King of Navarre soon learns, however, that the Princess of France and her ladies are about to arrive. Although he... more...

  • King Learby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; US$ 5.99

    Shakespeare's King Lear challenges us with the magnitude, intensity, and sheer duration of the pain that it represents. Its figures harden their hearts, engage in violence, or try to alleviate the suffering of others. Lear himself rages until his sanity cracks. What, then, keeps bringing us back to King Lear ? For all the force of its language,... more...

  • Richard IIby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; US$ 5.99

    Shakespeare's Richard II presents a momentous struggle between Richard II and his cousin Henry Bolingbroke. Richard is the legitimate king; he succeeded his grandfather, King Edward III, after the earlier death of his father Edward, the Black Prince. Yet Richard is also seen by many as a tyrant. He toys with his subjects, exiling Bolingbroke for... more...

  • Timon of Athensby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; US$ 5.99

    The real Timon of Athens lived there in the fifth century BCE, making him a contemporary of Socrates and Pericles. Shakespeare presents Timon as a figure who suffers such profound disillusionment that he becomes a misanthrope, or man-hater. This makes him a more interesting character than the caricature he had become to Shakespeare's contemporaries,... more...
